No progress in McCourt mediation; talks may extend into Saturday

The mediation talks between Frank and Jamie McCourt have broken for lunch, with no announcement of any progress toward a settlement.

The parties are trying to resolve a divorce case in which the future of the Dodgers is at stake. Each of the McCourts is in attendance, accompanied by several lawyers.

In the absence of a settlement, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon will rule on the validity of a disputed 2004 agreement.

Frank McCourt has asked the court to uphold the agreement, which would leave him with sole ownership of the Dodgers. Jamie McCourt has asked the court to throw out the agreement, in which case the Dodgers would be considered community property and likely sold.

Mediation talks could extend into Saturday. If the parties cannot resolve the case, the divorce trial would resume Monday, for its third and presumably final week.

Come on McCourts.. just do the city a favor and sell the team to someone who will run them like the major market team they are as opposed to a mid to small market team that you still cant afford.... don't you know where you aren't wanted????

Do the right thing, sell the team, go back to Boston and operate parking lots.

You two shameless carpetbaggers have embarrassed LA long enough.
